  • Another awesome read by Isaac Hooke He has this knack for keeping you on the edge of your seat if you like current military action books these are for you


  • Isaac Hooke beats Tom Clancy with Spec Ops in 2015 IraqIt s no wonder so many brave military personnel love this book, from PO s to war hardened Commanders Isaac Hooke delivers his A game in this gritty, realistic thriller This review does not contain spoilers A Cold Day in Mosul is an incredibly detailed look at spec ops behind enemy lines in Iraq during the 2015 Middle East conflict The technical realism is amazing, from vehicle combat tactics to computer hacking, to weapons munitions, to exfi [...]


  • Once again, an excellent story from Isaac Hooke A Cold Day in Mosul is non stop action The plot is laid out so vividly that I felt like I was watching a movie as I read the book In fact, this could easily be the basis for a movie If you re looking for a story that immerses you in the action as if you re looking over the shoulder of the characters, then this book is for you.


  • Good action sequences showing the mideast as it is a gritty, realistic tale of a group of US agents acting behind ISIL lines in Syria and Iraq The action is fast and furious, but the plot development and character development is pretty thin This is the 2nd book in the series that I have read, and it s enough for me I will be looking for novels where the characters have some depth to them.


  • BRAVO Mr HookeEthan Galaal along with two other operatives who are also his friends along with their lady boss Sam are in serious trouble this time They are captured by ISIS and I d doesn t look good Now I ve read the second in the series, I ll definitely be buying 3 Another outstanding author in the Vince Flynn, Brad Thor category


  • A pretty poor execution of a paramilitary spy thriller, I lost any sympathy for the protagonists, I m deliberately not using the term heroes, when they threatened the family of a target to get information this and the liberal use of torture made the book pretty much enjoyable for me.



  • Iraq, you goddamn sandpit of the world you Isaac Hooke is obviously an author of many talents because, as well as writing intriguing, sometimes breathtaking, science fiction, he is also a master of the action packed, thrill every minute, page turning excitement in this story of behind the lines special services rescue Not only is the pace fast and the writing itself good, but Mr.Hooke still finds time to imbue his characters with life, both visceral and emotional as well as giving vivid location [...]


  • Reminiscent of Tom Clancy s early Jack Ryan adventures and a worthy successor to Vince Flynn s Mitch Rapp I m a character reader, I get into the characters, their story, who what they are The author does an amazing job of painting the primary character quickly thoroughly All the significant characters in his writing are developed similarly This book is in all senses of the word, a thriller that could be plucked from today s headlines No spoilers from me though I can see about these characters i [...]


  • I absolutely LOVED this book What a great follow up to Clandestine It was really fast paced yet gave so much detail I could totally see it in my head After finishing the book I felt like I had just watched a really good action movie I really loved how the author tosses in interesting little tidbits of information here and there that remind you that yes this is a real place in current time with a long and varied history This book has so much action packed into it Gun fights, Fist fights, car chas [...]


  • Barnes and Noble free ebook Overall, a deduction for a plot based on extra judicial killing, and US forces invading and acting without much hint of support from the host country What right did the special forces have to be there in the first place Also, a good dose of weapons porn, lots of model numbers Kind of Tom Clancy Body count was pretty high, also Liked the idea of the female team leader Sam , the idea of the team dressing as women, but that s a bout it.


  • Another good readI m not military, but there s definitely a few scenes in this book that strain believability Especially a few where they escape being surrounded and disarmed Twice He doesn t go into details about how to shoot or get really technical, but I love the flow of the book The villains are believable and the book is action packed I like how the story keeps rolling and the characters keep going despite impossible odds.


  • Excellent story set in war torn middle eastern countries Ethan, William, Doug the boss lady Sam are operatives in the DIA They are all well trained, but even so Sam is taken prisoner in Mosul The others come to her aid That s as much as I will say so as not to take away from the story Lots of action, good guys and bad guys Spies everywhere, some are low tech and then there are drones of varying sizes and purposes I was entertained throughout the entire book Great


  • Lots of suspenseful action in this book It is definitely a thriller should be made into a movie One comment though there was a lot of detail re weaponry that may be of interest to army personnel but I personally did not enjoy the details in assault rifles and guns, for ex Other than that, a contemporary action packed novel


  • Good stuff This is so well written The characters are deep, but not cheesy the plot is great without being overly complex the action is on the money, and the interpersonal stuff makes this a top read


  • Plenty of action in a desert war environment.The author has a good grasp of the terminology of this sort of combat arena Character development could use some further development, but the story moves along well.


  • Thoroughly enjoyed the intrigue in this kindle book Lots of adventure, kept on edge situations, brutal treatment of principles, betrayal, etc A quick read for those who like war type stories and survival of spies in foreign countries.


  • Wow The action was non stop Mr Hooke has created this great character in Ethan Galaal, one that could equal other well known fictional Anti Terrorist Operatives.I highly recommend this book and the others in the series.


  • Edge of your seat read Absolutely Brilliant Book I had a very hard time putting this book down Action packed from start to finish I Highly Recommend this book if you are into war books.


  • Another well crafted story from Isaac The characters were interesting and realistic and I quickly identified with them and their efforts A fast moving story that I did not want to put down until I finished.I already have book 3 in my reading queue.


  • Well written, yet failed to make any impact Much of the focus seemed to be on pacy action packed narration rather than characterisation main reason why the book missed a higher rating.





  • I typically don t give too many 5 stars but this one is one hell of a nail biting, page turner, make you read the previous book, keeps you reading till late thriller Well done sir




  • Story keeps your attention, holding your breath for what happens next with the clandestine team working behind the scenes in the Middle East to eliminate the jihadists IS.


  • A proof reader, wonderful.Very well written, fast paced, but not a comic book Couldn t even find anything wrong with the research Shall finish the series, enjoy.
